Veterinary Medical Center Tour
The College of Veterinary Medicine offers public tours of its facilities to groups and individuals. The Veterinary Medical Center is a working hospital and our patients are our top priority. Like patients in a human hospital, our patients are here because they need medical attention. Because of this, the tour is not a hands-on experience. Also we must be mindful of biosecurity, liability, patient confidentiality and operational issues; therefore, the following restrictions have been implemented:
We are happy to provide tours to individual students interested in pursuing a career in veterinary medicine as well group tours for high school and college level groups related to animal science, health profession, 4-H clubs, pre-vet clubs, etc.
Anyone interested in discussing admissions-related information and would also like a tour of our facilities should contact April Pugh at (614) 247-1512 or pugh [dot] 102 [at] osu [dot] edu.
Tour guides are current veterinary student. As the tour guides have an irregular schedule, tours are given by appointment only. In order to accommodate all individuals and groups, please complete the tour request form below.
